Weapons Offenses

Gun charges and other weapons offenses should not be taken lightly. As stand-alone charges, they can lead to serious penalties. In many cases, they accompany other charges, making matters much more complex. If you have been accused of a weapons crime, you should enlist a lawyer who understands the prosecution and can stand up for your rights.

A Strong Lawyer Fighting Gun Crime Charges

Many of the cases we handle involve law-abiding citizens accused of possessing a firearm without a license or carrying a concealed firearm without a permit.

Laws against carrying concealed weapons also extend beyond guns. Carrying other concealed weapons, such as knives, stun guns or brass knuckles, can lead to criminal charges. It is also important to know that, even with a permit, it is illegal to bring a firearm into a school or an establishment where alcohol is sold, and doing so can result in criminal charges. Furthermore, convicted felons are barred from possessing a firearm in any context. Our lawyers defend against all concealed weapon charges, gun permit violations and more.

Use of a firearm in commission of a felony or drug-related crime is another charge that our attorneys frequently defend against. We have the strength to take on multiple charges, including gun charges, drug charges and more.
